"I was always the fat kid" confesses Wade Wingler, whose collection of essays on cycling, weight loss, and life describe his journey of losing 100 pounds and struggling to keep the weight off. From the purchase of his first bicycle since childhood, through successfully completing several long-distance rides and weeklong bicycle tours, Wingler's essays are heartwarming and sometimes heart wrenching. Low points include the loss of his father and the end of his marriage. High points include new love and his humorous attempts at learning to ride a unicycle. In the end, he learns that life — much like cycling — has it's ups and downs. In the end, it's all about the ride.
